Recap, Work & Pay it Forward...

Real Life Weekend... hanging at the club... Youngest plays in a two-day Jr Golf Tournament...


Oldest hangs out at the pool...
And today back to work... Fifi recently finished 20 custom bookmarks for a lady's 91 birthday... these are gifts for her guests... here is a slide show of work process...


Speaking of Bookmarks... 6 new designs available in Fifi's Paris Shop ... Don't Miss the SALE!!!


Recently a fellow blogger Thoughts From An Evil Overlord... asked me to PAY IT FORWARD... I agreed and she sent me all these FUN treasures above... So now it is MY TURN TO SEND SOMETHING TO YOU...


HERE ARE THE RULES: The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.This is how it works... I am going to agree to send something fun, cute, & nice to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on. Unfortunately, due to postage costs, I can only pay it forward within the United States. If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 blog owners to leave a comment! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just a gift that will make the person smile. There are no cost restraints, but don't go crazy! If you'd like to join in, be one of the first 3 people to leave me a comment. You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. I hope people like this idea. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face!


I guarantee there will be ART from me!

What a fun thing to do.. to pay it forward. Love your bookmarks. Fun to watch how you do it. Are they all going to be the same for her? They would make cute party gift's.
Wow 91, how fantastic.

Hi Fifi again, when you said you loved the painting in my blog, did you mean the photo with dark red things from a bedroom? I am sorry that I only write in Swedish in my blog now :)
Please let me know if it was the one you mean - I would love to see it painted later! Maybe I can order it from you if I pay for the transportation to Sweden... :)

Have a nice day!

What a lovely thing to do ~ wish I had been one of the three. Hmm, maybe this will be something I will take on myself anyway. You've touched my heart, Fifi!

Love your art. Love your blog. Want to order bookmarks, but for the life of me, can't find your e-mail address on the blog or the site, and site & the blog won't let me link to send an e-mail. Is it possible that you post the e-mail address?
Cheers,

Krissy said...

You make such lovely art! The pay it forward thing is a lot of fun, I did it earlier this year and had a blast!!!

Those bookmarks are just like little jewels! Life begins at 91...Indeed!!

Marie Louise said...

What a great idea although I'm terribly late to the party. Love your bookmarks for the 91st birthday. It was cool to see your work space in the slide show. Saw your cup of coffee and wonder if it was your first, second or fifth of the day!

Robin said...

I love the slide show of your work in progress- you still make it look so easy.

And I'm sad I was not up and about early enough to be one of the first 3 but it is a great idea and I think I will pay it forward a little myself this week.
